Asbestos Exposure from Construction Work – Nationwide Advocacy for Mesothelioma Victims
Asbestos has unique properties of fire resistance and heat insulation, which led to its widespread use in construction materials. Although asbestos was eradicated from most products after the severe health effects were known, the damage was done.
Mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused only by breathing asbestos fibers, develops at least 25 years and as many as 50 years after exposure. The Throneberry Law Office stands ready to represent those people who are just now showing symptoms of asbestos disease from long-ago inhalation of asbestos through construction, remodeling and demolition work.
We take cases nationwide, and we will travel to you. Our goal is to connect clients to quality medical treatment and aggressively pursue compensation to pay for that expensive care. Contact us today for a free consultation if you have a diagnosis or symptoms and worked in the construction trades.
Linking Asbestos Disease to Construction and Remodeling
Our job is to identify the specific products our clients used, to document a lawsuit against the companies that manufactured or supplied those products, or against employers who failed to protect their workers from asbestos hazards.
Asbestos was prevalent in hundreds of materials used in construction:
- Wallboard, plaster and joint compounds
- Brick mortar
- Roof shingles
- Attic insulation
- Plumbing pipes and valves
- Ceiling tiles and flooring materials
- Electrical wiring
- Paints, stains and solvents
Our lawyers represent carpenters and welders, plumbers and electricians, roofers, painters and others who worked in close contact with asbestos-containing products, as well as family members exposed second-hand when construction workers came home with the asbestos on their clothes.
Some of these products were not hazardous to humans until old homes, apartments and buildings were torn down or renovated, releasing asbestos fibers into the air. This exposed remodeling contractors and demolition crews, as well as building occupants and nearby residents, to sufficient levels of asbestos to cause mesothelioma or other asbestos disease.
We Understand How Hard This Is
